    Hopefully this is not double post. Clicked submit but the post didn’t show up.
    Just got my new Ti10 Gen3. Cone/Shaft code combo checked valid, laser engraved. Racket feels good, but maybe euphoria of getting my first Ti10. One thing that nags me is the printing of “YY Yonex” on cone and “SP” on shaft, both looks a little smeared as compared to other parts of the racket. My other yonex racket also looks sharp. Will post photo when I’m back at home later. Not sure it’s just quality control of this batch 261298SP, or it’s a expensive fake.
    Pls share if you’ve seen/heard/experienced something similar. Thx in advance.

    Hopefully it's genuine. Bought it from a shop, can go back to complain. But I do anticipate their claims to be real, and "don't believe what internets says" etc.

    Thx for the respond. That's what I'm hoping for.
    I believe there're many Ti10 Gen3 owners in this forum. Pls help to see if there's any difference or abnormality in the racket design.
